Lakeside Middle School is very nice. I am going to the 9th grade in 1 month, which means that I just left Lakeside in June. I have been there since 6th grade, and enjoyed it ever since. The teachers are very nice and push you to do your best. To be honest, there are students there that only have their minds set on drama and fighting. That's only about 5 students in each grade level that only want to fight. When I was at Lakeside, I didn't really care about my education. I only cared about seeing my friends. But, now that I''ve left, I really appreciate all of the teachers'' help. People say that Lakeside is a ghetto school, but it's really not. Mr.Denning, the principal, gave us important speeches about our goals in life. He thinks of new ideas all of the time to give us a better education, and for most of the students there, it really works and helps them. There are even students there who think of great ideas to make Lakeside an even better school than what it already is. So, if you''re thinking about applying your child to Lakeside Middle School, there isn't one reason why I would say no to that. To conclude this review, Lakeside Middle School is absolutely amazing and will make you and your child very happy. I hope this review helped. Thank you.
